Native maize seed

Asked February 2, 2018, 8:58 PM EST

Do you know where I can purchase pre-Columbian mid-Atlantic variety of maize seed? It is my understanding that ancient American Indians bred and cultivated maize varieties adapted to this area. I would like to try growing some in my garden but the only native maize seeds I can find online are from Mexico. Seed sources for other ancient American Indian varieties of crops (beans, squash, etc) would also be appreciated. Thanks!
